win it. do appreciate all you do for prostate cancer as well. >> hillary clinton is no longer secretary of state and bid farewell to staff and friends at the state department. >> i am so grateful that we have had a chance to contribute in each of our ways to making our country and our world stronger, safer, fairer, and better. >> what will be clinton's legacy at state? let's go to the war room. strategist richard goodstein and republican strategist joe watkins, an aide to george h.w. bush. let me start with you. hillary clinton left as an extremely popular secretary of state and griacing news week's cover calling her the most powerful woman in american history. that's a definitive declaration. >> close to it. there many powerful women in the united states and in the world, but hillary clinton is easily one if not the most powerful. her career has been extraordinary. not only first lady, but a u.s. senator and secretary of state and somebody who could be again a candidate for the presidency in 2016. >> she came under fire for the attack on the consulate in ben gazay that left f
it probably should. this administration has shown itself to rely on drones and technology. hillary clinton mentioned this was a problem at the state department. we can bet it was a problem at the defense department. but this administration wants to put its faith there. we need manpower. in reality we still spend more than anyone else. but with iran heating up i don't think it's wise for us to be cutting back there. martha: how much of this is p.r. for lack of a better word in terms of alarming people. if you don't come to some sort of deal in washington you will see and hear more about losing presence in areas like the persian gulf? >> i think have much so. you have got republicans want to go pull back on sequestration. you have got the democrats wanting to. i think this is posturing for the white house trying to show republicans who are ostensibly the pro-defense party, we are going to make cutbacks in areas you don't want to cutback if the sequestration doesn't go through. martha: defense is one of the most important parts of the budget. if the see questionser kicks in is it an across th
hillary clinton's was. >> i could not agree with more. in terms of what we're going to hear from panetta, he will say the same thing from hillary clinton. essentially the same answers that he has already given in many interviews over how many months since the benghazi attack. what we can expect to hear from congressional republicans are the same sorts of disrespectful and antagonistic ill-informed things we also heard during the hearings of hillary clinton and even chuck hagel. >> heather: so not iminformed responses. i'll toss this question to you. they did indict the department of state, this is a quote, with shocking irresponsibility to protect american personnel at benghazi. the fact is the intelligence community and the department of state, they were sharing reports mostly provided by the c.i.a. for months that were outlining the growing threat in benghazi and, indeed, it was focused on western influence particularly the u.s. those requests early on for additional security prior to the attack went unanswered. you are satisfied with that response from panetta? >> yeah, i think what i
consulate could not sustain an attack. senator graham wanted to know why secretary clinton testified she never saw that cable. >> i don't know that she didn't know about the cable. >> she said she didn't. >> then -- >> are you stunned that she didn't? >> i would call myself surprised that she didn't. >> senator mccain asked about the u.s. providing weapons to the syrian opposition. >> did you support the recommendation by secretary of state, then secretary of state clinton and then head of c.i.a. general petraeus that we provide weapons to the resistance in syria? do you support that? >> we did. >> last weekend the "new york times" reported clinton and petraeus asked the white house last summer for permission to arm the veerian rebels. senator rand paul hinted last week that the annex in benghazi benefiting may have been involved in moving weapons from libya to syria via turkey. chris? >> jennifer griffin reporting from the pentagon. thanks. let's get reaction now from the vice chair of the senate intelligence committee, georgia republican sax by chambliss. you were busy in both hearings
in the south china sea. i daresay as interesting as it may sound, and my present -- secretary clinton who made her first trip to asia, i have heard rumors to the effect incoming secretary of state kerry will make its first trip to the middle east. we are going to pivot to asia,. back to the middle east seems to repave it. host: -- repivot. host: u.s. sanctions are proving counterproductive. the economy is in ruins. the countrydeadlocked in the cos heading toward sectarian breakup. the grim prognosis for syria is provided by the latest report provided by the state department working with the free syrian army. guest: i admire him and i know he has been writing quite a bit about him lately. he is symptomatic of the disease that has set into washington, which is a new-found interest in syria. when the revolution began, to find voices of concern over syria was a virtually impossible treasure hunt. we were expressing deep concern than that unless we involve ourselves, when i say involved, i will be careful -- once we did what we could politically to get the disparate opposition groups more organized
with libyan government officials in the attack. white house official wrote, "secretary clinton called libyan president el-megarif on behalf of the president on the evening of september 11, 2012, to coordinate support to protect americans in libya and access to libyan territory." that angered graham. >> the president of the united states did not make any phone calls to any government official. and libya, the entire period of the attack. he called government officials on september 12, after everybody was dead. >> we would not have gotten answers but for pushing for this. frankly, the more answers we have gotten i think we have shown here that this was a national security failure. >> late today, president obama said chuck hagel is imminently qualified to be secretary of defense. the president says he deserves a vote and predicted eventually he will get confirmed. >> bret: mikes, thanks. we just got word from the pentagon that panetta is heading to california tonight, to monterrey. the ride is also getting bumpy for the president's choice as top spy master. the complication and confusion continu
to the -- [ inaudible ] the tv aperiences including the view september 25 under cut statement. >> hillary clinton said it was act of terrorism. is it? what do you say? >> we are still doing an investigation. >> for august classified state department cable where it could not sustain coordinated attack? >> were you aware of the august 16 cable? >> that cable did not come to my attention. >> what appeared to be a smoking gun warning known as the defense secretary and chairman of joint chief and not secretary clinton. >> is that right? >> general, you were aware of that? >> i would call myself surprised she didn't. >> today, they released series of question by john brennan, pick to lead c.i.a. to who makes a call american can be caused for death. there is a review for various agency as well as president. >> stay on it. >> bret: politicians gamble with other people's money for a living. this one got caught. >> two henly events on the same day that have nothing to do with each other. meteor and the asteroid. next. how do you keep an older car running like new? you ask a ford customer. when they tell you tha
, we join president barack obama, secretary of state hillary rodham clinton, democratic leader nancy pelosi and expensive network of people in saluting ambassador chris stevens who will be remembered for his strong sense of dignity, his humility and his generous service to others. he will be truly missed by all who loved him and by all he served throughout the magnitude of his life's work. thank you for this honor. [applause] >>> members of christopher stevens family, ladies and gentlemen, let me first thank chris stevens' brothers and sisters for their warm and delightful insights into what he was really like. thank you so much. that was fantastic what you did for us. christopher stevens was obviously an extraordinary human being and contributor. every year at stanford we have a group of what we call national security fellows come. they were roughly army, navy, air force, state department. a couple weeks ago we had a meeting and the first person i called on was an army colonel. i said where were you last? he said in libya. i said did you know christopher stevens? he said everybody k
in charge with the people on the ground. >> would you say secretary clinton in charge. >> pardon me? >> was secretary clinton in charge. >> the people in charge, were the ambassador there at benghazi. >> no. but, they can't, you know, they were trying to save their lives. rick: richard grenell, a former spokesperson for the last four u.s. ambassadors to the u.n. byron york, is chief political correspondent at the "washington examiner". gentlemen, good to see you both. rick, you first. you worked at a number of administrations. odd that the president himself would be so hands off while one of our consulates was under attack? >> yeah, very odd. i think it's, mitt romney was right. it really was a weak response from the president. he was off in vegas at a fund-raiser. the simple fact is, they took a couple pictures in the oval office where secretary panetta was briefing the president. but the president was hands off. the other thing we learned, secretary clinton was hand off. these employees that were under attack were state department employees. where was secretary clinton? she didn't
. they ask for gifts but the tree remembers. >> host: when you hear the term bill clinton is the first -- black president of the united states what are your thoughts? >> guest: oh my. i think it's absurd personally. i think sometimes we have been denied the highest attention for so long that when people attend our church and they know the hymns or they play the saxophone reasonably well, we accord them credit that is largely undeserved. bill clinton was returning that fleeing haitian refugees who had been fleeing the military dictatorship that we armed and supported in haiti, and he cordoned the place with ships and copies people and turned them over to their killers. in rwanda, in the u.n. it was ambassador madeleine albright who has to take some responsibility for it but deaths of 500,000 tutsis in rwanda because she single-handedly obstructed do you win intervention with the support of bill clinton. when a handful of nations and the caribbean, st. lucia, dominica and a few others, banana producing nation's, had a small slice of the european market to export their finance, though cli
with the consequences -- consequences of those decisions. the global jihadist threat that secretary clinton pointed out does not have the belief that a democracy is a good idea. that a people electing representatives in a republican form of government is a good idea. they believed that we need some religious leader like the ayatollah khomeini or now in iran. they need a religious leader like that that tells us what we can do, that makes all his decisions under shari'a law. . all of those who met during the revolution, they believed in the power of prayer to god, and that's why they prayed during that time, but they wanted much to have the chance to worship as they chose. be they muslim, hindu. but especially judeo-christian beliefs where jews and christians had traditionally suffered so much persecution. they wanted the chance for people to worship as they please or not worship, but they knew to make that possible had he had to -- they had to pray to god. that's why we are observing once again tomorrow the national prayer breakfast where our president will speak, where we will have a fantastic testimon
the recommendation by secretary of state, then secretary of state clinton, and then head of cia general petraeus that we provide weapons to the resistance in syria. >> we did. >> you did support that? >> we did. >> reporter: that's the first time that i've heard that the defense department and military officials say that they had recommended arming syrian rebels. you'll remember over the weekend that "the new york times" reported that last summer petraeus and clinton approached the white house for permission to arm the rebels. "the new york times" says that the white house rejected that request. however, there have been some implications from questions from senators on the hill as to whether in fact what was going on in benghazi was that there was some sort of operation to repackage arms, send them through turkey to syrian rebels. this is what was the basis of the question by senator rand paul to hillary clinton during the benghazi hearings last week. here is what they said. >> now my question is, is the u.s. involved with any procuring of weapons, transfer of weapons, buying, selling, anyhow tr
to the process. so the process exists. what senator secretary clinton asked me to do soon after benghazi was to collaborate with her to make sure we can make improvements to the system. >> general, thank you for your service. mr. secretary, it's been an honor to serve in our government. thank you, mr. chairman. >> thank you, senator donnelly. senator king. >> mr. secretary, and general, thank you for being here. i wouldn't like to associate myself with senator cruz's comments i regret being a first year senator and not being able to work with you. i'm in the process of hire ang legislative assistant for the committee. if you go back to california, get longing for washington. let me know. i think it's rather unlikely. >> been there, done that. [laughter] i want to followup on a question from senator mckeen. -- cain. given it was close in terms of transportation time, why was that not an option to get people there faster? was it question of who and what is at the crete pace? general dempsey? >> the bases we have in southern europe and the met mediterranean area are generally speaking have
not hear from president obama or from secretary of state hillary clinton on the night of this attack. what does that tell us about the administration's handling of this crisis? our panel debates. . >> my question to you is during that eight-hour period, did the president show any curiosity about how is this going? what kind of assets do you have helping these people? did he ever make that phone call? >> look, there is no question in my mind the president of the united states was concerned about american lives. anyone have occasional constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating? yes! one phillips' colon health probiotic cap each day helps defend against these digestive issues with three strains of good bacteria. live the regular life. phillips'. live the regular life. avoid bad.fats. don't go over 2000... 1200 calories a day. carbs are bad. carbs are good. the story keeps changing. so i'm not listening... to anyone but myself. i know better nutrition when i see it: great grains. great grains cereal starts whole and stays whole. see the seam? more processed flakes look nothing like naturalrains. yo
. >> did you support the recommendation by secretary of state, then secretary of state clinton and then head of cia general petraeus that we provide weapons to the resistance in syria? did you support that? >> we did. >> now, white house spokesman jay carney said he could not get into internal deliberations but added the administration has to be very careful not to send weapons that could wind up in the wrong hands. john? >> ed henry for us tonight at the white house. ed, thanks. more of this later on in the program with the panel as well. you've probably noticed that you're paying a lot more for gasoline today than you did just a month ago. the national average, $3.57 a gallon. that is 27 cents more than it was in early january. crude oil futures were down 11 cents to close at 95.72 a barrel, but the entire equation may be changing. our chief national correspondent jim angle reports the days of america's against oamerica's den oil could be numbered. >> reporter: the u.s. has discover energy than it thought it had. some talk about north american energy independence. >> we could
pollster for president bill clinton. pat, what did you think? >> he was better than hagel in the hearing. >>gregg: that is not saying much. >> he got caught up in the drone stuff and making incredible statements. what came out because the same day he testified we had outgoing secretary of defense panetta, went to testify on benghazi and told us what we learned. two weeks ago, we talked last week about the difference between what panetta and clinton said about iran versus hagel, and two weeks ago when they went on "60 minutes" we called it the biggest pay off in history. in that show, i remember suggesting one of the reasons that came out of hillary clinton's testimony was interesting to pursue, what was the president doing? we now know the president wasn't engaged. they had a 5:15 minute meeting that was preplanned and he did not talk to secretary of defense, clinton, and according to panetta, talked to no one. what we have a foreign policy that is coming apart. >>gregg: you were in the carter administration. all hands on deck the. >> the president himself, for ten, 15, 20 hours a day, i
the previous eight years of the bush administration and the previous eight years of clinton administration. i can continue to go back, so i do not think they he are serious about negotiating. it just gives them more time. >> reporter: the general says the u.s. along with other nations should use covert operations to thwart iran's nuclear development. gregg? >> molly henneberg. thanks. >>> the white house says it expects the senate to confirm president obama's nominee for defense secretary. white house press secretary jay carney defending former republican senator chuck hagel saying that he will be an excellent pentagon chief. now, this comes after a fiery confirmation hearing with members of the senate armed services committee. he faced some tough questions including this one from senator james imhoff. >> why do you think the rainan foreign ministry strongly supports your nomination to be the secretary of defense? >> i have a difficult enough time with american politics senator. i have no idea, but thank you. >> senators could vote as early as this week. washington times columnist charlie hur
is now a professor at the harvard business school, former fha director in the clinton years, was certainly one of the most voluble players in the commission. i also want to point out senator alfonzo jackson. please stand and be recognized. [applause] i want to turn the podium back over to senator george mitchell. >> years ago, when bob dole, howard baker, tom daschle, and i gathered to establish the bipartisan by -- bipartisan policy center, we were dismayed to the extent to which our political process appeared to be in gridlock as a consequence of excessive partisanship and ideological posturing. that concern is heightened today. i frequently cite the example of the presidential campaign of 1800 when jefferson supporters called president adams a hermaphrodite, lacking, they said, the strength of a man or the gentleness of a woman. supporters said that its jefferson were elected, robbery, rape, and murder would be openly taught and practiced in our country. it was rough and tough when we were there, but it has gotten proper and tupper today. we at the bipartisan policy cente
of state hillary clinton. the white house had doubts about which rebels could be trusted with the arms. those details came to light during the senate hearing on libya. they had tough questions for panetta. he related he and president obama spoke once during the eight-hour benghazi attack that left four americans dead. it also explained why war plains weren't sent. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. nancy, good morning. >> good morning, norah. panetta says the reason planes were not sent is because it came in two waves. after the first wave ended, they all thought it was over. plus, he said there wasn't enough actionable intelligence on the ground to act. >> you can't just willy nilly send f-16s there and blow up the place without knowing what's taking place. >> they said they were aware in the months before the attack u.s. ambassador chris stevens was worried about safety in libya. >> we never received a request to do, so number one snopa any ta argued that benghazi was just one of many u.s. outposts receiving threats. >> u.s. military has neither the resources nor t
, with a number of the university's distinguished alumni. in particular president clinton, and he and i during the time i was both o.m.b. director and then as his chief of staff, would spend many hours of conversation talking about his experience as a southern baptist getting a catholic education. he talked about it a lot. and also during my time, obviously, in the obama administration i greatly benefited from many of the georgetown graduates. i had the honor to have someone as my chief of staff, jeremy bash, who graduated here from georgetown, serve as my chief of staff at the c.i.a. and then followed me to the pentagon as my chief of staff. and also someone who's had a public affairs at the pentagon, george little, who is also someone who both graduated and later taught here at georgetown. talented young individuals who have been at my side every day for the last four years at both the c.i.a. and the pentagon, and i am deeply grateful for their work for me and on behalf of the nation and i am deeply grateful for georgetown for training such extraordinary public servants. and speaking of extr
. it was sent to secretary clinton's office one month before the attack. mrs. clinton testified in january that she never saw it. >> were aware of this cable, this august 16th cable? >> congressman, that cable did not come to my attention. i have made it very clear that the security cables did not come to my attention or above the assistant secretary level where the arb placed responsibility, where as i think ambassador pickering said the rubber hit the road. >> reporter: one ever the revelations of the panetta dempsey testimony is that this state department cable warning the consulate could not sustain a coordinated assault was considered so important that they were read in on it. >> when secretary clinton testified a few weeks ago that she had a clear-eyed assessment of the threat we faced in libya is that really a credible statement if she didn't know about the ambassador's cable on august the 15th saying we can't defend this place? >> i don't know that she didn't know about the cable. >> she said she didn't. are you stunned that she didn't? >> i would call myself surprised that she did
the president and secretary of state clinton know about a cable from ambassador chris steves warning the danconsulate, quote, could sustain an assault. he strongly believes that the obama administration simply did not support the fragile libyan government enough in the early days. that led to a fragile security situation that he believes that, at the end of the day, contributed to this attack. >> as you know, getting the answers to these questions, part of the issue's involved chuck hagel. by now, there was supposed to be a new defense secretary. leon panetta was supposed to be already back in california. but all that is set back. what's the latest? what's going on with panetta? he's staying put, i take it, for the time being? >> reporter: he is staying in office and running the pentagon till hagel is confirmed. but not necessarily running the pentagon from right here. he went back to his california home over the weekend. he will travel this week to brussels for a nato summit. hagel was supposed to go to that summit. and then the big question is, after that, somewhere in the saturday
it was a new york times story that revealed last week that both secretary clinton and general petraeus then head of the cia, had also advocated sending arms to the rebels in the resistance in syria so now we have a situation where the entire national security team, secretary of defense, secretary of state, head of cia, chairman of joint chiefs of staff who all advocated sending weapons to these rebels so they could defend themselves, keeping in mind the russians are supplying assad including the revolutionary iranian guard on the ground. so what happened? obviously, the buck stopped with the president of the united states overruling the recommendation of the national security team that he appointed. really remarkable. >> greta: and i have a sorted related topic. everybody knows that you say torture doesn't work and the now the report about drones coming out of the justice department that americans thought to be terrorists on foreign soil can be essentially disintegrated by drones. your thought about this? >> my thought is two thoughts. one, because of this administration's policy, if y
. >> with respect to keystone, secretary clinton put in place a very open and transparent process which i am committed to seeing through. i can guarantee you that it will be fair and transparent, accountable. and we hope that we will be able to be in a position to make an announcement in the near term. >>gretchen: here to weigh in, michigan's republican representative fred upton, who by the way, wants us to call him fred. i'm going to do what you want. all right, fred, what do you think of john kerry? is he going to flip-flop on this and now be in favor of the keystone pipeline? >> it's been four and a half years they have been studying this. we know the safest way to transport this oil is by pipeline. canada is going to increase production to four million barrels per day before the end of the decade. they are going to send it either to china or build a pipeline east to the atlantic and put it on a boat to send it to new orleans. isn't it better to put it on a pipeline that is going to be more efficient and getting it to the right place? >>brian: it is as frustrating following governor cuomo
relied on then secretary of state hillary clinton, to reach out on his behalf. that is a revelation that outraged senators lindsey graham. >> the president of united states did not make any phone calls to any government official in libya, the entire period of the attack. he found out from the letter he called governmmnt officials in libya on september 12. after everyone was dead. >> we would not have gotten answers but for push are for this the more answers we've gotten, we've shown this is a national security failure. >> oyote and graham have beee two of the most system skeptical. but they are hardly the republican's only concerns, questions remain over the former senator's past statements and his votes on israel, iran, iraq and nuclear weapons, and at this hour not clear that hagel will be able to placate opposition to his domination, but sense tear reed said that the senate the try for a vote 12 days from today. senate majority leader just released this statement, we want to share it with you, in a time of war and threats to americans at home and abroad, senate republicans are wa

clinton. >> you have to ask questions to get answers. if you make statements in a congressional hearing you'll get statements filibustering back at you. lindsey graham said that the hagel nomination for secretary of defense would not make it on to the floor unless the armed services committee got testimony from leon panetta about benghazi. that looks to be in train and i think they will insist that that testimony take place before the committee itself votes on the hagel nomination. bill: just one more question here, very broadly speaking. we were just talking about the middle east. you could move south on that map and talk about the northern continent of africa. >> right. bill: what are we doing as a country to engage in either of these areas to make sure the problems of today do not get worse? >> we have no strategy. that's why i've been so concerned that the whole sweep from the atlanta coast of west africa, through the middle east, all the way over to pakistan is deteriorating from the proceed pebgt tiff the united states and its close allies. israel, arab countries in the region. th
, but it's a very close to the clinton administration and worked with the bush administration and yet we find out he was involved in supporting terrorism internationally, surrogates arrested in noticing 23 years of prison. i'm asking what could be the prospect that somebody get back in the country and from a political standpoint, their arrest could potentially, like 79 if he started talking about the people he worked with on capitol hill, the people he met with then work with obviously would be very politically very same. what if you have hypothetically someone working closely with the president. we know we had a number of a known terrorist organization he did in the white house last year, even as secretary napolitano is sitting where you are could not answer she even if i was happening when it is in the papers. by the time she gets to the senate, she said the check was fÊted three times. there were things that could end up high politically proving if somebody gets back in the 90s state, someone might look for a way to see they never testify. we are talking hypothetically, but i wanted
